The Almighty says, "O you who believe! Turn in sincere repentance to Allah." (66:8)
The Almighty says, "Your Lord is swift in retribution, and He is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (7:167); The Seal of all prophets, Prophet Muhammad, may peace and blessings be upon him, said "The Garden (al-Jannah) is nearer to you than your own sandal strap and it is the same with the Fire." (Bukhari)
Ever wonder about forgiveness? In this motivating talk, Ustadha Shamira will discuss the essence of tawbah, balancing between hope and fear, and the importance of striving for the Eternal Pleasure of God the Almighty. In addition, Ustadha Shamira will discuss the importance of seeking forgiveness and how to practically incorporate this important part of our Deen into our daily lives.
This event is free and open to all interested sisters. Please join us!
